12:48 , quote from that Kentucky auditor: "... many types of districts may continue to exist because there is not a process for them to be dissolved".
and as an example, here is a list of districts in texas, among which some that have no dissolution process defined.
if i were a gambling man, i would wager your next reply would be about how "almost impossible to dissolve" isn't equivalent to "no process for dissolution exists" and i should be ashamed for misusing that quote.
